In short: “don’t worry, folks. They were anti-Zionist Jews!” (I guess it is easy to mistake them for the “regular kind” of Jew)

Incidentally, Hamideh seems to think even Zionist Jews belong in New York – perhaps just to be shot up. But his buddy Linda is not so sure they belong there.

Update: It’s also a lie: the group that was attacked is part of the Agudah movement and supports the UTJ Party in Israel. While not Zionist, they are pro-Israel and Rabbi Rottenberg of the synagogue has no affiliation with Mr Weiss (not a rabbi; he is self ordained) who does not speak on their behalf. The synagogue itself issued its own statement which thanked the State of Israel for their support (hat tip: Dovid).
